Event #30: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em Championship

Iry Taylor Turns Tens Into A Double-Up

John Sozio raised to 57,000 from under-the-gun and watched as Iry Taylor moved all-in for his last 102,000. Sozio held {A-Spades}{K-Hearts} and liked his hand enough to make the call. Taylor flipped up his {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} and the players were in a classic coin flip situation.

Flop: {J-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

Sozio saw high cards hit the flop but not the right ones, although he did pick up a gutshot draw to the Broadway straight. He could now win if Taylor made a set of tens.

Turn: {2-Diamonds}
River: {4-Clubs}

Sozio missed his outs and Taylor's pair of tens were good enough to earn the double. He built his stack to 240,000 with the win and Sozio dropped to just 130,000 after losing the race.
